Row Row Row Your Boat

Wherever the heck you want to!

When life is not taking you in the direction that you need to go and when things are not healthy, it is time to change directions. This past few weeks have been stormy for me with many ups and downs and in betweens.

I quit a job for the first time in my life. I am always hard on myself and I felt bad because I quit. I think sometimes I am my own worst enemy when it comes to my high expectations. I think all the close people around me were suffering because I was suffering and they knew it and I would not allow myself to admit deep down to the fact that things were not getting any better at the workplace, just more pressurized, negative and stressful. I was trying to stick with it for a year, just long enough to change departments but it just became too much. I couldn't handle it any longer and had gone to my limit.

My attitude changed the other night when I had a talk with my Father. He mentioned, if you knew you were going to die at midnight... Would you still be feeling this way? Of course I said No! He was right. I needed to stop focusing on the past and enjoy my right now!!!

I am relieved now and am just taking a little breather before looking for a better opportunity.

P.S. I designed a new banner for the blog with Armando's help. Do you like it? It has a feather on it that I found at Lake Guntersville.

Very pretty banner and new colors darling :)

You did the right thing in the job, it was not a very good place to work. Sometimes you fight but things are not up to you. wasn't the place to you there.

Just cheer up and focus in the future.

I love you

I love the feather on your banner... it's beautiful...
how is that you quit your job?... I understand you, I really do, sometimes it's not an option for you to quit, you always keep on (whatever you were doing), but sometimes to quit is the best thing to do because if you don't there'll be no "you" to keep on any longer. watch for you and the ones you love, nobody else will do it for you. take care please, and is life is in b/w you can take your pencils and paint it with all the colors you like the most... don't let anybody stress you and whenever someone wants to (stress you) you alwalys can tell him/her: "Adios con tu cuerpo y olvidate del mio" (it's something like: goodbye to your body and forget about mine)LOL
I'M gonna miss you, why is that you're not comming?. :(
sorry about muy english, I hope you understood me...
Love
Hugs
and kisses
